    Oh, interesting. Didn't expect the 780(Ti) to reach eol so fast. I know it's barely marketing, but I'm still a little surprised they didn't just lower the prices and make them something like 20 to 40$ cheaper than the 980 or 970, respectively.

    I wonder how they sold because in the nvidia presentation they mentioned the GTX 680 by itself sold 10 million cards. Which is crazy when you think about it.

    Worldwide? Crazy, but not unexpected. I think the chinese market is what makes such hardware sell.

    270 EUR (without VAT of course) for GTX 970 looks very much tempting tbh and I might jump into 970 vagon soon, do some GPU OC between 1400 ~ 1500 and be peaceful for 1080p gaming for another maybe 2 years with rig in my specs. Then upgrade CPU & mobo to something new + DDR4 which I expect will be mature enough and DDR4 price expect to drop significantly by then. But...

    But then I realize where I'm living right now: GTX 970 will be available here in week or two from now, np I can wait for that, but main problem is that price for it will be (I'm sure it'll be) nearly doubled in next two or three months from now compared to the other countries on the west side: I expect 500 € inc.VAT for GTX 970 or even more here in first month or two, damn :bang:

    980s are currently online for sale in Norway at 5,500 Nok which translates to 647Euros or 508GBP

    Looks like regardless of Nvidias MSRP drop we are still going to get shafted.

    They going all out, AMDs buried here, can't see them dropping the 290s to around £150, and the Xs to around £200, looks like payback time for when they had to sell their 200s at a loss when AMD dropped their 4 series :D

    From HH's review GTX970 is around r9-290 and r9-290x based on game, sometimes better sometimes worse.
    And not many care about power consumption enough to require significant price drop.

    But those additional technologies are tempting.
    Either True Audio which I want to have in new GPU (or APU) and Mantle which I can live without or Low power consumption, very good downsampling I can't care about less since I try to have as high frame rate as possible and realistic lighting which may prove to be beautiful enough to make me care.

    I like these cards a lot, but nVidia did leave the door wide open here for AMD to smash them with low priced and better performing cards within a few months.

    I don't know about "door wide open". I have no doubt that AMD will strike back with something higher performing in a few months. But the cards Nvidia released today are 400mm2 cards. They are small by Nvidia standards. GM210 will probably be 33% faster on 28nm and 66% on 20nm. And Nvidia is basically just holding it in their back pocket, like the architecture is already done. Soon as 20nm hits acceptable yields that card is manufacturable.

    I mean AMD might still exceed that but I'm just saying, it's not like Nvidia left themselves without options.
